Winter Suiting Fabrics
Suits come into their own during winter time. As temperatures fall, the opportunity to brace against the chill with hard-working fabrics unfolds – much like a bolt of fine cashmere, ready for cutting. We believe that the right material can make or break an ensemble: that’s why, this year, Scabal offers three winter suit solutions to fit frosty mornings as well as nights by a roaring fire.
Woven from pure Super 100’s wool, the Heroic collection is a year-round staple which suits colder climes to a T. Classic, plain styles sit beside traditional weaves like herringbone and shadow stripe – but surprising detail and flashes of colour hold their own here too. Subtle touches of delicate blues and pinks, characterful checks and dynamic wide pinstripes offer Heroic options with flair amidst a refined colour palette. Ideal for the man who expects the world from his wardrobe, this collection brims with adaptable sophistication: from office to soiree, all via chilly taxi queues and brusque walks in between.
For the most special of special occasions – or the gentleman looking to add a little luxury to his every day – Scabal’s Triumph collection blends Super 140’s wool with the finest cashmere. As easy to wear as it is to tailor, the fabric’s light-as-air feel contrasts with its robust weave and durable quality. Classic base colours of blues, greys and browns reveal hints of warmer hues in their chic checks and subtle stripes; meanwhile, a wide variety of designs – from pin head plains to overchecks, and from glenchecks to tonal herringbones and shadow stripes – sit beautifully atop the fabric’s natural gleam.
Purpose built for plunging mercury, the Tornado collection offers serious insulation without compromising on style. At 320g weight in 2-ply construction, the fabric is made in England by Scabal’s highly experienced craftsmen – and with designs ranging from stylish simplicity to graphic checks and herringbone, there’s no need to choose between practical and aesthetic excellence. Soft glenchecks, microshadow designs and multi-coloured stripes join classic greys, blues and navys with warmth woven in subtle hues throughout. A one-stop-shop, for evenings that call for dress suits when the weather has other plans.
Scabal’s unswerving passion for cloth is matched only by the depth of our heritage. Since being founded in 1938, we’ve weathered more than eighty English winters – which makes 2019 the perfect year to embrace that generational expertise. Wrap up, and stay cool.
